On the things, you have to do after a crash is to get back on the bike. I had already planned to take the day off on Thursday to go over to Dallas to ride with my college friend, fraternity brother, and former roommate Bob Jung. (Who I hope reads and clicks on the ads in this blog)
Bob rides, not at the level that I do, but has one Hotter N Hell under his belt. I was allready to ride him in the ground, show off my new bike and the skinnier me. Of course, my crash on Monday did a wonderful job of humbling me.
Bob and I did a very nice ride on a beautiful blustery day around White Rock Lake. It became very clear to me that I banged up my shoulder much more than I thought I did. It was quite painful to ride and my back got real tense trying to take the load of my shoulder. I had envisoned a much longer ride.
Bob and I got in a good visit. In no means did I ever push the pace. One of the cool things we did do is stop at the Dallas Bicycle Café that just opened by the lake.
As a cycling geek, it was really cool and I hope it succeeds. I am already plotting one of my infamous urban centuries .that will make it a destination.
